ASTHMA: Project to reduce risk

editorial image

I am writing to let you know that people in your area with asthma are being invited to take part in a pilot scheme for a digital health project aimed at reducing their risk of having an asthma attack.

Asthma UK’s 12-week Asthma Support Programme, funded by a Department of Health Innovation Challenge Fund grant, provides expert advice, activities and tips sent straight to your smartphone.

The pilot is open to people who have had an asthma attack in the last year, are aged between 18-67, live in England and have a smartphone. Those involved will receive personalised digital support.

Anyone who is interested in taking part can find out more at www.asthma.org.uk/asthma-support-programme
